About Club Equestrian
About Club Equestrian
We are a husband and wife team both passionate about training horses and riders. Fortunate to have trained with some of the worlds leading trainers we have gained valuable experience and knowledge enabling us to produce many successful horses and riders. We have also trained many college equine students towards BHS exams and equine diploma's.
At Club Equestrian we want to give children the best foundation to progress to the highest level in their riding, whilst having fun with friends and enjoying the day to day care of looking after horses. We both have so many wonderful childhood pony memories, Dickon can remember vividly his first riding lesson at the age of 7, including the name of the pony and the instructor. I too can remember my first lesson. Later I remember long sunny days bathing ponies and collecting hay bales until dusk, cold crisp mornings, keeping warm from the steam off the midden. I even recall fondly the rainy days, trudging across muddy fields to catch wet ponies and bringing them into their cosy stables.
If some of our young riders are fortunate to get their own pony one day, we want them to know how to care and look after the ponies to the highest standard. We also want them to learn how keep themselves safe, our Saturday Club and After School Club do just this. Children can also loan their own pony which is a fabulous way for them and their parents to get a taste of owning a pony.
Horses and ponies appreciate quiet, sympathetic riders. Club Equestrian trains riders to be in balance and harmony with their horse. Our team of fabulous ponies look after their riders, allowing them to progress and gain in confidence quickly.
We want our riders to feel they are progressing, so riders can work towards 'achievement stars and rosettes', pony club badges and attend our show days. We give a rider of the month award and best kept pony award each month.
We look forward to welcoming you at Club Equestrian and hope we can give your children memories to treasure.
